As much as I love thick, rich, and creamy smoothies – sometimes I feel like something on the lighter side. I usually think of cucumber and kiwi drinks during the summer because they are so cool and refreshing. There’s nothing better on a hot day than cucumber kiwi infused water or a martini. Yum!

Kiwis and cucumber aren’t great only in the summer, though. The first time I made this smoothie was on a cold day in February and it was exactly what I needed.

Sometimes you just want a light and refreshing smoothie.

Cucumbers are loaded with phytonutrients that provide us with valuable antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. They contain the antioxidant nutrients vitamin C, beta-carotene, and manganese.

Kiwis are packed with more vitamin C than the equivalent amount of orange and are loaded with vitamin K. Vitamin C is a water-soluble antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals and helps support the immune system. Kiwis are a good source of the mineral potassium.

Kiwis also contain a good amount of dietary fiber. Fiber is helpful in keeping blood sugar levels under control and for keeping you feeling full for longer.

Spinach has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant health benefits, and is loaded with vitamins and minerals. It is also a great source of fiber and protein – both help to make you feel fuller faster and longer.
